A libtool update needs to be done in sync between the GCC, binutils-gdb 
and src repositories, and as far as I know would still require reverting 
certain libtool changes relating to sysroots that are incompatible with 
the notion of sysroots used in those trees (libtool commit 
3334f7ed5851ef1e96b052f2984c4acdbf39e20c), and of course need lots of 
testing in different configurations; while a good idea, it's not a simple 
matter of using a new libtool version.
